Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Frldqy, October 29, 1971 Lacklustre session with neiv chairman between sUi-1 for two often opposed factions A rap session denls, [acuity and Lcif Erick- sen, chairman of the Alberta universities commission pro- duced no concrete statements, issues or answers. A lack casual rap session with Mr. Erickscn and about 30 faculty and students from the University of Leth- bridge Thursday spoke around and not about many subjects. Mr. Ericksen said the uni- versities commission is a "two- headed monster" which func- tioned to serve and protect both the university and the taxpay- er. He was vague about how die commission could function Wheat growers send letter The Palliser Wheat Growers' money 10 Association has sent a letter to universities was determined T-annmmonrtatmTl nf fnP Otto Lang, minister responsible for the Canadian Wheat Board, requesting removal of restric- tions prohibiting the interpro- movement of feed v i n c i a 1 grains. Walter Nelson, president of the association, said the group has always advocated the free movement of feed grain be- tween the four western prov- inces and the letter to Mr. Lang resulted from a resolu- tion passed at a symposium open to all farmers. Mr. Nelson said it is now legal to buy and sell grain within the boundaries of any province, and that by remov- ing the restrictions between the four western provinces, a larger trading area would be opened for both producers and growers. He said this would help to stabilize prices for feed grains which have been driven down- ward because of illegal "boot- legging" of grain by some oper- ators. "British Columbia is now buy- ing feed from the U.S., and this is a market that rightfully be- at once. When asked about the enrol- ment problems created by the loss of many student aged young persons to the north and what the commission's policy for the problem was, he said he didn't have one, nor did he think the government had. In a discussion of tha current formula financing for universi- ties be said a problem faced by Alberta universities this year was that the formula had been designed to function for a pro- jected enrolled students, "but only students show- ed up." When one student asked if the current formula funding work- ed on a quantitative, rather tlmn qualitative basis, thus tending to make all of the Alberta uni- versities the same by setting the same standards for both large and small institutions, he said it was a fact that there were only so many dol- lars and the current system seemed to work." He said the total amount of money to operate the Alberta upon recommendation of the commission. The commission gave the money to the universi- ties and they used it as they saw fit. Mr. Erieksen ended the dis- cussion by stating universities will have to become more flexi- ble in the next five to 10 years and suggested one area in which changes could be made involved the changing of the two year probationary teach- ing period to three-year con tracts. He mentioned no other areas of change. First-aid course The Workmen's Compensa tion Board of Alberta is pre senting a first aid course at the Lethbridge Scandinavian Hall, 229 12th St. C N., from Nov. 15 to 25. Classes will be from to 10 p.m. each evening. Everyone is welcome an( there will be no charge for those under the Workmen': Compensation Act. longs to Prairie he I -p0 register contact your em New 'instant mail' service launched in Lethbridge The assured mail program, launched in Toronto earlier this year, will be introduced in Lath- bridge Monday, assuring one- day delivery of first class mail from the city to destinations in Canada. A. D. Lewis, Lethbridge post- master, in making the an- nouncement said the plan is a sophisticated, delicately timed program that is dependent on schedules being met at every stage from the time of mailing to the time of delivery. He said it takes into account time differential, processing re- quirements and transportation schedules across the country. "The principal is quite sim- he said. "To provide re- liability, it was necessary to relieve the congestion which oc- curred in our post offices in the early evening hours. "Where our plan is unique is that we have provided assured delivery when mail is deposit- ed in special mail boxes by stated times." The plan makes use of two distinct types of mail the famifiar residential mail boxes, which are basically red in color and new commercial boxes, which have a blue and white stripe on a red back- ground. Mr. Lewis said there will be 84 residential boxes and 33 commercial boxes in the busi- ness area and in sub-post of- fices. Starting Monday, any letters posted in any mail box in the city before p.m. will be assured of next delivery-day service to Calgary, Cranbrook, Edmonton, Lethbridge, Medi- cine Hat, Reglna, Saskatoon, Vancouver and Winnipeg, as well as other major centres in southern Alberta. Second delivery day ser- vice is assured for first class mail going to large centres in eastern Canada. Mr. Lewis said it must be stressed that this deadline ap- plies to all mail boxes. The main post office will accept mail for this schedule until p.m. Any mail after this deadline will be processed la- ter or the next day. Mail posted in the striped boxes after p.m. but be- fore 5 p.m. is still assured next- day d e 1 i v e r y to Cranbrook, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat ind other major centres in ern Alberta. This deadline is also extend- ed at the main post office until p.m. Mr. Lewis said the and 5 p.m. deadlines had to be es- tablished in order to clear the mail from the main post office in time to catch departing planes and trains, or highway services, in time for next-day delivery or second day deli- very in the east. "While the assured mail plan applies to first class mail only, the effect of moving peak loads forward should make possible better service to other classes of mail as he said. Skiing films set for this weekend Ski enthusiasts will have the opportunity this weekend to see a number of sking films. Bryan Wilson, president of the southern Alberta zone of the Canadian Ski Patrol said eight winter sports films will be shown at "Count Down for Winter '72'. He said "Count Down" was the first of a hopefully annual Lethbridge ski-oriented event. Saturday's program will in- clude films, winter sports dis- plays and a used-ski swap. Mr. Wilson said there would be no admission charge to the ASSURED POSTAL SERVICE A. D. Lewis, left, holds the mail door open on one of 33 newly-marked mail boxes, for Don Baguni, supervisor of letter carriers as they go through a dry run of the new service scheduled to go into operation Monday. Set up on the principle of customer co-operation and tight scheduling, the service will means next-day delivery for first class mail in most areas of western Canada. Also to be used for the service are 82 regularly marked mail boxes in the residential areas. The new boxes have blue and while stripe just below the door optning. said. "The same tiling happened a few years ago to our eastern markets when the boundary restrictions forced eastern pro- ducers to feed their stock.

Lougheed will ask delay in new federal tax bill Jesus Christ, Superstar actor keen on new music By RICHARD BURKE Staff Writer EDMONTON Premier Pe- ter Lougheed told Alberta Ur- Did you notice many import car prices went up? Did you notice Pinto's didn't? Now's the best time to buy one tough little car. jan Municipalities Association convention delegates Thursday he province would ask the fed- eral government for a one-year delay in the proposed new fed- eral tax bill. In his first public address since taking over the leader- ship of Alberta, Mr. Lougbeed said as it stands, the new tax measures provide Alberta with the least benefits of any of toe )rovi3jces. This was one of several iroblems the premier outlined which will face the province in the near future. He also refer- red to the federal equalization ormula which includes Alber- a revenues from oil and gas. These revenues, he said, are unlike income tax in that they are nim-recurring and are un- airly used to "artificially bol- ster" the economy of areas in he country where growth pp- .ential is much less than in Alberta. ion tia'gp, preparation ond t got ond Provincial Ton at your Ford Dealer Ski season here Ski season has officially ar- rived, and starting this week- end Sunshine Valley Ski Resort in Banff National Park will be operating its Strawberry T-Bar and Stendish chair-lift. Sunshine's assistant manager Tohn Cow said there is a 12- inch packed base with new snow falling all the time. The Strawberry T-Bar is 2.000 feet long and lias a 400-foot vertical drop. The Standish chair lift is feet long and has a verti- cal drop of 675 feet. Both lite will be operating on the weekends until Nov. 10 when the entire complex wil he opened with a ski instruc- tor's clinic and exam. Sanding caution City of Lethbridge is now sanding the streets in an effort to cope with the icy streets. Motorists were asked by city officials to exercise caution and courtesy when approach ing sanding vehicles. At leas a 30 foot distance should be maintained to allow proper spreading of the sand materia and to prevent damage to aut mobiles, city officials said. Because he was addressing epresentatives from urban municipalities, Mr. Lougheed discussed the relationships be- ween the three levels of gov- ernment. He said he hopes an approp- riate means of municipal par- ticipation in joint federal-pro- programs can be devel- oped. The local government's of view must be consid- ered before such programs crystalize, he said. However, the premier said: 'We are not prepared to have such tri-level consultation pro- vide a further vehicle for fed- eral involvement in our juris- dictional responsibilities and to expand federal programs aim- ed at bolstering regional dis- )arities to the disadvantage of Albertans." Another problem facing the province is the "compounding of our land-locked geography and distance from markets" >rought about by federally-ini- tiated transportation decisions. As a means of altering those decisions, Mr. Lougheed said a start was made this week when .he province intervened in the Canadian transportation com- mission hearings in Calgary future ownership of Solids Pipelines. On property taxation, Pre- mier Lougheed said not to ex- sect any adjustment resulting "great but to look for a shif in emphasis so that social services are based more on the ability to pay. On urban growth, he said the new government does not In- tend to have policies which will restrict development of the metropolitan areas of Edmon- ton and Calgary. Those two centres got all the attention fa Calgary Mayor Rod Sykes' remarks introduc ing the premier's address. Mayor Andy Anderson put in a plug for Lethbridge prcced ing his speech officially thank ing Mr. Lougheed for speaking to the AUMA. Mayor Anderson said "Lethbridge is the best lit tie city in Canada."

Jesus Christ Superstar was rewritten to suit the sympho- nic rock theme the Privilege lead magicians in the company wished to achieve. The group's Gary Here wrote he symphony and At MeGae wrote ''ie words. It does follow the original Jesus Christ Superstar quite closely, said Mr. Krawchuk. The Privilege is now re- searching material for an op- era about Canada. Mr. Krawchuk said the group is using a new way of writing :or the opera.
